Hero: Miller Canyon Trail
small-sr Icon

Miller Canyon trail is a relatively easy out and back off Highway 50 on BLM land in Utah's western desert. This graded trail has occasional small water crossings during the snowmelt. As the trail gains elevation, the canyon offers beautiful views and shaded relief from the hot desert sun with multiple large dispersed camping sites throughout, complete with rare desert tree cover. The upper section of the trail also runs along the northeastern border of the Notch Peak Wilderness Study Area. There are signs of old mining claims everywhere, with occasional old rock dwellings dotting the trail for history buffs. The trail is just minutes from the beautiful Sevier Lake salt beds, which have great dispersed camping in cooler months.
